Rep. Freeman attends the bill-signing ceremony of S.B. 66, now Act 2 of 2013. The law, which Freeman helped to shepherd through the House, reforms the State Tax Equalization Board and puts the independent board under the Department of Community and Economic Development's purview. STEB is responsible for making sure the market values within municipalities are correct for the 89 school districts that require multi-county tax equalization. The law addresses the need for proper oversight of the board to prevent school districts from receiving the wrong data, which had occurred in the past. Pictured with Freeman are Sen. John Gordner, Gov. Tom Corbett and advocates of the legislation.
